Fans in Los Angeles got some bad news this weekend when it was reported that under doctor's orders, Eric Clapton has pulled the plug on his two shows at The Forum. The dates have been rescheduled for September.
Here's the official statement from Eric Clapton's Facebook page:
Due to severe bronchitis and under doctor’s advisement, Eric Clapton is rescheduling this weekend’s two shows at The Forum in Los Angeles. The Saturday March 25th show will now be held Wednesday, September 13th. The Sunday March 26th show will now be held Monday September 18th . He is very sorry to disappoint his fans but looks forward to these shows. Ticketholders can retain their tickets for the new dates or refunds will be issued at point of purchase. In addition, Clapton will play the already scheduled two shows at The Forum September 15th and 16th.
Clapton is out on the road touring in what he calls "A Celebration of 50 Years Of Music" with support from Gary Clarke Jr. and Dallas' own Jimmy Vaughan. He played two shows in New York last weekend and the setlist looked amazing....
